Before u guys get too excited abt this cake.. lemme just tell u that i didnt bake this cake.. i wish i cud tho... look at the cake.. doesnt it look like a bark of a tree?? Well thats how it shud be.. they dont call Baumkuchen "Tree Cake" for no reason ey.. its baked on a spit.. u can read all abt it on here.. (theres a recipe too if u wanna try) i did however take these photos hehhe.. i had to ask hb to go and get it for me in Berlin since thats where it all started at Konditorei Rabien in 1878.. had to try the original version of it.. had to just compare with the one that is being sold here - Juchheim...
The verdict?? not the same.. this cake is much more denser than the one here.. not spongy at all and almost like eating lapis cake .. dryer version of lapis cake i must say... hb thinks its nice.. but again he likes any European cakes just like Sacher Torte which to me is a little dry for my liking.. i will someday bake Sacher the indon way and see if it tastes any different..
Anyway enough abt Rabien Baumkuchen .. i know its late but i wanna wish every teacher in the world.. happy teachers day... of cos its especially dedicated to a few of my cousins who have been teaching all their life... i bet this is a special day for ur students cos this is the day where u guys are happy and wont punish ur students hahahah
So ok thats it... i hope i will hv the time to bake something for the family tomorrow and share new recipes with my readers... to Fadzilah.. ty for this order.. she had ordered it bef we left for Spain.. hope Matin n his classmates like these Ben10 cuppies!
